About me

I’m Lucianne, a creative with a talent for website design, branding, marketing collateral and specialism within the retail sector. What can I say!? I grew up with a fashion designer mum and IT specialist for a father, and landed somewhere half way between. I’ve run my own business creating on-brand and on-time design solutions for nearly 10 years; working with everyone from large corporations, fashion retailers, luxury boutiques to start ups, savvy entrepeneurs and even a bride and groom or two! I specialise in helping businesses grow through a deeply personalised and hands-on approach. Your brand, your customer and your intentions will be at the core of everything I do; I am here to help you grow! On top of running my business, I’ve worked in-house for Topshop | Topman, La Perla, Monica Vinader and Kurt Geiger within graphics, visuals and creative. I also write an interiors blog, Cushion Fort, and make sure to spot and pat dogs everywhere I go.
